Really? Walking your boat along a flat road is crappy? Interesting....

Spot on report about the Box, that is a fun run. The standard put in is at the High Bridge access, which is a bit hard to find.

As for the Lake Fork Canyon, sorry to hear that one log stopped you from running what is a sweet stretch. Surprise Ledge is a hoot, and Last Chance is a fun drop, just go left. I'm not sure how it could be described as "not worth it", if it's over 500 then I definitely consider it "worth it". But, YMMV....

My intention was not to disrespect the run, so I will qualify my statements. By not worth it, I was referring to the time in the boat vs time on the water. I estimated the run to be a hour at most, with the (rocky scree steepish embankment) portage of a shredder. We had a deflated boat, a napping baby, and a 3 hour drive home. To me, it was not worth the hassle, especially if I couldn't run rattlesnake. To someone else with different circumstances, they may have made a different choice and had a great time. It's all a matter of perception and opinion.

We were there on the 30th of May. River was flooding all from Hensen Creek. Lots of strainers in the Gateview Section. At least 3 different places.
Some of our group ran the Lake Section (?) above "The Gate" campground. Some of us went for a hike.
